Marcia Talmage Schneider traveled to Israel where she traced Janusz Korczak's legacy through first hand interviews with ten graduates of Korczak's Jewish Warsaw, Poland orphanage. It was these interviews which were the basis of her book, Janusz Korczak; Sculptor of Children's Souls.
Join us for this fascinating talk about Marcia's journey, how she first "met" Korzack through the stories of the ten people whom she interviewed for the book, understanding what it was like to live in the orphanage, and how Korczak's philosophy and methods and personality influenced them in their lives. The persons or 'his children' range from photographers and artists to psychologists and educators.
